Tuesday night recap: Sea-King road warriors

Seven of the eight loser-out games in the Sea-King 3A District last night were won by the road team. Seven of eight. It definitely shows the strength of the Metro League, as five of those road wins came from Metro teams on KingCo 3A courts. The only KingCo 3A team to win at home was Mount Si, which beat Nathan Hale 62-56.

But the two biggest surprises came at Bainbridge, where both the boys and girls were stunned by the teams from Cleveland. Both Bainbridge teams had great seasons, and both were one win short of getting a first-round bye. Both figured to be contenders for state berths, and both had been near unbeatable on the island. But a pair of gutsy Cleveland wins later, and it’s Cleveland that is moving on. The girls will face Mercer Island on Friday; the boys will face No. 2 Bellevue.

Down south, our own Sandy Ringer chronicled how Auburn Riverside got its groove back, right in time for state. The Ravens convincingly beat Federal Way to set up a meeting with No. 1 Kentwood in the WCD championship.

And over in the Eastern regional, a couple huge favorites fell in the first round. The Lewis & Clark girls team, which had won 54 straight games until last week, has now lost two in a row after a first-round loss to Walla Walla. And Gonzaga Prep’s boys team, the No. 1 team all season long in Spokane this season, lost to Richland. Both teams now face a long road to the final state berth.
